A:CtS some KyexKou sketches by Tyshea A:CtS some KyexKou sketches by Tyshea
- as kids
- training match
- Kou smash, Kye don’t give a shit
- Kou’s visit to the infirmary after Kye loses her arm
- kids again, Kye getting Kou outta wherever he lost his eye

HAHA SORRY TO POST RIGHT AFTER THE SWEETNESS OF TJ/SIKA but I really like the relationship between these two? It’s kinda like this toxic sibling rivalry or something.
They grew up together under some pretty tough situations. It’s not a very healthy relationship in the end though.

More of these idiots in this gallery

She's gonna fuckin kick yo fuckin ass Kou watch yo shit
I really like this a lot. I get such a happy lady boner any time I see Kye's body. I REALLY LIKE THIS THAT IT'S A SHITTY RELATIONSHIP BUT ITS ACKNOWLEDGED and it doesn't look like its all shit either like they care about each other but their way of showing it might not necessarily be outwardly clear. This is really great. What a fun variety of relationships you have here. Brava.

Gosh Cait you make me wanna draw Kye naked ALL THE TIME

Yeah though, I think it's important to address obviously toxic relationships that do have some emotion there. It adds a lot of realism to the story and characters without being too rose-tinted because I hate when stories forgive bad relationships/people too easily. Too many people perpetuate the idea that you can "work it out" and sometimes you seriously just can't AND YEAH
LOOK WHAT YOU DID I'M RAMBLING AGAIN

That seems like quite the brutal relationship! O_o I do like the dynamic, though, certainly sibling-rivalry-like. o: To have such anger towards, yet still care for. Fantastic fighting poses, I really like how even the static ones have nice movement, and such powerful emotion going on. o:

Dose Kou remind anyone else of Asura? I mean the spiky white hair, the pupiless almost glowing eyes, the obvious rage issues. All he needs is red skin and four extra arm and they'd be fucking twins.

Yesssss~ Yes! Let the hate flow through you Kou!

Gawd, I don't know why I love the anger-bundle characters so much, but Kou tickles me pink... or at least a very deep sanguinary sticky red.

Young Kou makes me think 'fish-face' without his massive boulder crunching jaw of manliness, and kinda reminds me of Kaldur'ahm from Young Justice, though personality wise, they're nothing alike.

God I love his eye-rage.

Actually Kaldur was another visual inspiration for him, but the personality is way different like you said :XD:

You can have his eye-rage all to yourself, for only $500 an hour

So Kou is like a tiger. Is Kye a snake? If she is, I understand why Kou losses the sparing match. Precise and fast vs. Strong and wild.

Looking at the training match has got me wondering if losing her arm affected Kye's stability... and how long it would take for her to train up again, if it did...

Kye is such a boss. I love Kye's expressions of seriousness. I sense a Big sister little brother relationship with these two, they hate each other one minute and then the next they'd do anything to protect one another.

YES. YES FIGHTING ACTION COMBAT TRAINING SPARRING FEELS OF JOY AND JOYNESS

I don't think you realize just how much I adore your sparring! and combat! drawings, yo. There is so much life in it I can practically feel the sweat flying into my face as I ogle at the movements, I swear to God. The way you depict movement in characters is just so amazing okay :iconlazycryplz:

I especially love the last panel of the fighting! sequence. Kou's probably all "DAMMIT SHE'S DOING THIS ALL WITH ONE ARM IDK HOW MORE PATHETIC I CAN SEEM OKAY." The doofus side of me is desperate to add gloom lines by Kou's head and a puddle of tears/blood where his face is french kissing on the floor

These two. I just :iconasdfghplz: (headcanon) They're the best buds that never really labeled it as such or admitted it to themselves. Their whole relationship is basically an exaggeration of the term "tough love". They talk to each other best through deep silences (mostly on Kye's part) or unhinged roars (on Kou's part). While Kou may harbor some emotions of annoyance towards Kye every now and then (damn bitch still being better even with her goddamn limb cut off wtf), Kye is generally just 'meh' towards him like she is with everyone else. I think her lack of a reaction face is generally why Kou is always roaring at her (haha) but there are moments that Kou manages to get a reaction out of her, like when he lost his eye.

I have a feeling, being younger then and not being so experienced, Kye would've been pretty panicked internally when Kou decided to lose his eye and kinda pass out on her bahaha. I don't know if I'm exaggerating but I kinda see that panic in how you drew her eyes, IDK. Like "FUCK HE'S PASSED OUT FUCK. FUCK WE'RE FUCKING SURROUNDED. FUCKING KOU, FUCK. I SWEAR I WILL GRIND YOUR BALLS LATER FOR THIS"

Sad though that the only time he got a reaction out of Kye he was passed out BAHAHAHA. :)))

He will never admit it to anyone, even himself, but I think Kou looks a lot up to Kye, and thus, expect a lot from her (sometimes a bit more than others usually do). Kye would probs be all "I didn't ask you to look up to me" when she finds out which will most likely send Kou into a fit of rage and annoyance all over again bahaha poor bb.

I just. Ahhh, damn Ty. Damn.

FUCKING SENT THE COMMENT TOO EARLY OMG I'M SO SORRY. I MEANT TO HIT PREVIEW DAMMIT.

I think because of this whole looking up to her, it was Kou who was hit the hardest when Kye lost her arm. Also semi headcanon that Kye entered this dark place of uselessness when she lost her arm and Kou brought her back because he would not have her turn into some limp piece of assassin shit. Same thing happened to Kou when he lost his eye, probs.

THE FEELS.

Okay srsly done now. :blush:

I apologize for the cursing if it offends you/anyone who's reading

I can see the toxicity between them and I feel there are a lot of feelings of anger on Kouīs side. Jealousy perhaps? Kye was always the best assassin and Kou is jealous and wants to be the better one?
Anyway, great job as always, intense scenes especially the middle left one, itīs like fire and ice
